The platypus is a revolutionary nautical concept for exploration of shallow waters. This semi-submersible watercraft can navigate either on or under the water. It looks like a trimaran with a central float – called “pod” – connected to the lateral floats by rocker arms can immerse the pod and passengers to a depth of 2 meters for underwater navigation, the lateral hulls remaining at the surface with the engines. Powered by two outboard motors, the boat is designed to be powered by electrical or gas engines. It is accessible and usable for both surface navigation and immersion. Breathing is ensured by the platypus so there is no need for air tank!
